About this Collection
Our original characters are based on karajishi (the lion dog statues you see at temple gates). When Mandy and Taka met, Mandy said Taka’s name reminded her of “Shishi Dog.” These pins as well as our brand incorporate the Japanese concept of a and un, balance between dark and light forces. Shishi-chan’s mouth is open to scare off the bad spirits, while Shishi-ko’s mouth is closed to keep the good spirits in.
Since childhood, Mandy has loved “Shishi dogs” after her father brought them back from Japan and they were set up at her grandparents home. She admired their fierce ugly/cool appearance, so much so that she had them tattooed on her feet as a protection.
